JOOLS HOLLAND HITS THE ROAD FOR THE 2017 AUTUMN/WINTER TOUR
SPECIAL GUESTS INCLUDE ICONIC LATIN MUSICIAN JOSÉ FELICIANO
Musical virtuoso Jools Holland and his well-renowned Rhythm & Blues Orchestra come to Harrogate. Now in its 22nd year, this is not to be missed.
Joining Jools on stage will be Grammy Award winner José Feliciano, one of the most prominent stars in Latin America and revered musicians in the world. Having worked with the likes of John Lennon and Joni Mitchell in the past, his catalogue of international hits include his covers of The Doors’ “Light My Fire” and the Bee Gees’ “And the Sun Will Shine,” along with the much-loved Christmas classic, “Feliz Navidad”. Jools and José will also be recording an album together with the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, which is scheduled to be released on 27th October. With his mix of Latin and pop styles and his inimitable guitar playing, it’s no question that José will go down a storm on stage.
Jools Holland says of José Feliciano:
‘A man whose voice and guitar I’ve idolised all my life. A unique innovator whom I am immensely looking forward to working with’.
José Feliciano to Jools Holland:
My gosh! Jools Holland is an icon who’s played a major role in the life of contemporary music throughout the United Kingdom and way beyond. He continues to do so and for that I admire him greatly. Don’t ever deny us of your magic, Jools; it’s an honour to be working (playing!) with you.
Also featuring in the show will be fan favourites Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall and Beth Rowley on vocals, along with the supreme Rhythm & Blues Orchestra with original Squeeze member Gilson Lavis on drums. Master of ceremonies for the shows, Jools, will be performing tracks spanning his entire solo career along with pieces taken from his recent instrumental album Piano, released in December 2016, as well as songs from his new collaboration with José Feliciano.
With a huge collection of boogie-woogie tracks from multiple decades, a night at one of the UK’s most popular tours is for sure a memorable one!
